WORCESTER (CBS) – Worcester Police are looking for help trying to solve the case of a woman found dead near Salvation Army donation bins earlier this month.

A body was found near the bins in a parking lot on Cambridge Street the morning of Monday, January 7.

Police later identified the person as a woman, but have not released her name.

Police are now turning to the public for help.

“Sometimes information comes from the most unexpected sources, something small that someone might not think was important could turn out to be a big break in the case,” said Worcester Police Lt. Sean Murtha.

The break could crack open a case we know very little about. Police say an autopsy report did not reveal a cause of the death.

“So far the results are inconclusive so it has not been ruled a homicide,” Lt. Murtha said.

Police have been trying to determine if the woman was dumped in the lot or died there. They’re asking anyone who may have been in the area the night of Sunday, January 6 from 6:30 p.m. to about 7 a.m. Monday to give them a call at (508) 799-8651.  You can also leave an anonymous message at worcesterma.gov/police.
